Hello I'm Julie...
I have worked with children professionally for over 20 years ranging from 0-5 years. During this time, I gained a BTEC Level 3 qualification in Children’s Care Learning & Development, BTEC Level 3 Certificate in Management and a diploma in baby massage. I have also undertaken various training courses in order to enable me to support parents/families most effectively.
I have supported many parents regarding their child’s toileting, behaviour, eating habits, sleep patterns and overall development. Working closely with families, has allowed me to gain immense knowledge over the years. I have dealt with many worried and tearful parents who needed reassurance and guidance. It gives me great pleasure working with families and to be part of their journey. The most rewarding part for me is when I see parents/families happy and thriving.
I am a parent of 2, I know how difficult it can be when dealing with all the different stages children go through, the uncertainty can be overwhelming and not knowing what to do or who to turn to for advice or support can be stressful and can make you feel alone, this is something I have experienced myself. My aim is to make parents feel comfortable to express their feelings and worries openly, this will enable me to provide the best possible care and support. Getting to the source of any problem will improve a child’s development and well-being for the whole family.
I want to be that person you can turn to during your child’s early years, to help encourage their learning and development. All advice and guidance given is tailored to meet each child’s individual needs, what might work for one family, may not for another. In order to achieve goals, parents must be happy and agree with the routine and advice given. I will be able to give you peace of mind and support you in any way I can.
